Car Accidents & Injuries

Chicago and the state of Illinois are no different from the rest of the country when it comes to car accidents and injuries. Of the millions of accidents occurring every year in the United States, car accidents are by far the most common. Injuries range from bone fractures, head, brain, back and spinal cord injuries to paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia and death. While highway irregularities, weather conditions, defective tires and wildlife in the roadway contribute to many vehicle accidents, most are caused because someone is not paying attention. Talking to a passenger, distractions of children, eating while driving, talking on a cell phone, texting or changing radio stations all divert a driver’s attention.

If you are injured in an accident caused by the fault of another, you may have grounds for a lawsuit to pursue compensation for the harm you suffered. Medical expenses for patients with serious and catastrophic injuries can be astronomical. If you require rehabilitation or assistive care, your life and that of your family may be changed forever.

The steps you take immediately following an accident are critical, if you wish to hold liable parties responsible for the harm they caused. The most important thing you can do is retain an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your legal rights and determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit.
